its no irony if we say that Iraqi Translators have been left abandoned, even if we know the fact that United States has been working on helping them, but most of the help provided is reflecting, by one way or another, Media sources and how do they deal with matters concerning Iraqi Translators. Iraqi Translators who are being alone in the middle of this furious world who hates America and hates the policies of former administration becoming more than cursed by the world form one side, and by their own compatriots from another side.
if we take bigger look to what is happening for those who helped US Forces in general or Iraqi Translators in specific, they face different hard questions in their daily life, in Arab Homeland where Iraqi Translators are scattered they definitely can’t utter this secret to anyone, that once in their life they helped America in Iraq, they could imagine themselves to be killed, or disdained by those arabs who in past praised what Saddam’s regime did to his people, and were getting oil from Iraq in half price if not free in most of the cases. they become a suspect inside different intelligence directorates of these suppressive Arab regiemes, after using different types of tourture to force them to say whatever they want of information and finally leave them to face their destiny which could be death at the end!
as for their situation in Iraq, is not that better from these Arab countries, they are under serious threat by death sequads, or special groups funded by Iran to hunt them down, or seek any clue that leads to them. in their mormal life, they hardly can attend any public places, their neighbours and friends know from the Translator’s family that either they studying abroad or working somewhere outside Iraq.
as for Westren Governments we can barely say that they are helping them! what make things worse is what British Government is doing, when Members of British Parlement accused it and its policies towards former Iraqi Translators who help British Forces in Iraq, who believe that they risked their lives for Great Britian, when British Government decleared suspencion of aid allocated to them within two weaks! This aid program was decided by the Government 18 months ago, to help Iraqis who helped Great Britian in its mission in Iraq.
in this regard, a poem is written by Translators and Christians Blog, for those Translators who helped Foreign Forces in Iraq and still suffering, seeking anyone who may help!! is there any?!
Day is gone another came
Winds blew and hours the same
Birds sang while others hovered
Flowers grew, in the rain showered
Relevantly safe but destroyed inside
Many fears aroused nothing to hide
Future is gloomy and nothing for sure
Pain and grieve can the soul endure?
Stuck and waiting but waiting for what?
Windows are closed, doors are shut
Chasing the mirage and looking for measures
Dreaming of hopes seeking pleasures
Pleas are out prayers are over
Its long sad story of princess and lover
If time goes back to the very start
I would changed present, humbled the heart
Closing distance between misery and terror
Sharing peace looking into the mirror
Calling out from deep spirit
Aren’t we humans, can we live this merit?!
